Take 30 seconds. Breath in. Breath out. then ponder on those two words: “Living word”
The word is alive and very much so. The word lives and can give life to those who receive it. The word is alive in your heart and when you release it, becomes alive in the world around you.
Do you realize the power of this word that lies in your heart?
It’s not by accident that the Bible tells us that “Life and death are in the power of the tongue” Proverbs 18:21
The word is alive and it has the power to bring amazing things.
Think about it.
How have been promoted?
How did you get that job?
How do people call you?
With a word: your name.
How do you ask for something?
How do you give instructions?
How do you teach? Learn? Communicate?
But also you get offended when a bad word has been spoken over you.
You become sad when you receive bad news (word) from the doctor.
Someone passed away and you’ve been told the news with a word.
Words, words, words.
They are everywhere and carry life or death. Good or bad depending on us.
But there is One who always speaks good words upon. He always comforts, always encourages, always teaches, always appeases, always entertains, always guides, always brings life.
Jesus said: “The words I have spoken to you–they are full of the Spirit and life.” John 6:63
Jesus’ words were full of spirit and life. Those who could hear them, and received were blessed.
His words are still spirit and life today as he dwells with us, within us.
Let us no be afraid to speak the goodness of God that lies deep within. Let us not lower but lift because our words have power.
Which spirit is leading you?
If it’s the Holy Spirit then you are the temple of the Holy Spirit and the words that come out of you are holy. They are wisdom. They are powerful and can change those who receive them. They can change them in a good way.
The word is alive, my friend. Do not underestimate the power of the word that lies in your heart.
Release the goodness of God.
David said: “The Spirit of the LORD spoke through me; His word was on my tongue.” 2 Samuel 23:2
David was aware of his relationship with the Lord and don’t come to tell me he was holier than us. We all know what David did to Uriah. How he took his wife and got him killed.
Yet! Repentance will lead to a restored relationship and David was able to speak those words at the end of his life.
The word of God in you matters. It’s not yours but His. Release it today!
